Go Red for Women is crucial in driving local support to fund life-saving research and to educate women. Though we have made great strides in the advancement of women's cardiovascular health, we still have far to go. We need your help now so that our mothers, sisters and daughters have a chance to fight this silent killer. By sharing a commitment to speak up, spread the word and support the research, you can help save lives.
Please help me raise money for Capital Region Go Red for Women.
In 2020, 2 of the most important men in my life passed away, in May, my older brother Sam had a sudden heart attack while driving his dump truck at work, he didn't survive the heart attack. He was 50 years old!
Then if that wasn't horrific enough, in November, my younger brother Steven also had a sudden heart attach while SLEEPING, he also did not survive. He was 43 years old!
Neither of these men were undergoing stressful activity or any major stress at the time, neither of them have ever had heart issues.
Then in December, my sister Kim was diagnosed with Heart Disease, she's controlling it with lifestyle changes and medications.
I thankfully have been cleared but it's so very important to me to ensure that medical treatment is available to those that need it.
This year, I was selected by the American Heart BetterU program to become heart healthy and to live a heart smart lifestyle.
Along with my BetterU sisters we are learning healthy skills to help us battle the number one killer of women in America! That's including all the cancers out there!
Yep I said, NUMBER 1! This isn't something you want to be number 1 in.
Please donate, even if it's your coffee change, every penny goes to help American Heart programs to battle this horrific disease!
